Every year GM performs a door-to-door census on all the stores in Georgetown. The thing is, though, that GM has gotten a bit busy (or lazy) and pushed off the census a little more every year. So by the time he got around to it this year, it was more like fifteen months since the last tally. As a result, the “changes” are probably exaggerated a bit.
